Learn Songwriting with Master Songwriter James G. Brodie from Ivy Blue in Hamilton

Methodology

My teaching method is very practical and delivers the basic fundamentals of songwriting while allowing the students to explore their areas of musical interest and working with the student to develop their skills with their interests in mind. Students will have the opportunity to have one-on-one and group songwriting sessions that will assist them in developing their songwriting skills and further develop their passion for music in the process.

Experience

Ivy Blue (real name James Brodie) is an alternative musician from Te Aroha, New Zealand. Brodie performs live as a solo artist. However, over the course of five studio albums and 1 Studio EP- Ivy Blue (along with his mysterious friends in the Stanley Ave Band who play on his albums) he has proven that his music is far-reaching and can relate to many walks of life.

From his debut EP “22A” and his first album “Chasing Avenues right through to recent material such as “Present Shapes”, “Echoes And Silence”, and “21”; Ivy Blue has shown his skills in rock and alternative music, forming a back-catalogue that is both varied and well-loved by his fan base while battling Autism and ADHD- neurological disorders that make him see the world through a different set of eyes. Despite this, Brodie is a man of few words and allows his music and live shows to speak for him- with Brodie never appearing in his own music videos and not talking unless there’s something to say- which in a world of over-sharing is a testament that Brodie would rather let his work talk and walk on his behalf while still performing successfully in New Zealand and Europe.

Ivy Blue's new studio album with the Stanley Ave Band “Echoes And Silence” was released on May the 24th 2020, and Ivy Blue will be performing in support of this release in 2021, with a new solo and acoustic release anticipated in the first half of 2021. Life’s been rocky for the musician, but after a stint of mental rehabilitation in the second half of the year, he’s learning to walk again and he can’t wait to share the journey with his friends once again.
